the Shamanettes / Bio

Most of the songs from our first album I wrote years ago (just the bass and lyrics). Then I met Gibson. He wanted to learn drums and I was so new to the music scene in every way, so it worked out well-ington! Javier joined in. He was already sharing our practice space w/a different band. He's a classically trained musical dog! Oops, I meant god, I swear.

They made me name our band and kept telling me it was MY BAND for like ever. It started that way, but it's OUR BAND now. (even though I'm writing whatever and junk for this website) They don't care to take the time to do this part anymore than I do, which is hardly enough to get anything done.

Playing music together and coming up with new songs together is one of my favorite things to do now, especially cuz I get to shout into a mic during practice and no one seems to mind. Oh, and of course because we get to drink beer while we practice. We're going to start recording our second album soon. I'm so excited. I've been playing w/a pick finally and learned some new tricks or whatever. I can't thank Gibson enough for being patient w/me and teaching me tons of stuff and for always taking off his shirt in practice :-D and thank you Javier for your unwillingness to compromise yourself and bringing such flavors to our everything.

Thank you Chout for recording our first album and the one we're about to do. I'm so sorry I shy'd out and erased the credits inside the cover. I didn't thank Jordan, my brother, for giving us Necrophilia either. He wrote Utopia, which is going on our second album. I frickin love that song. Utopia and Necrophilia are basically covers of songs that haven't been made yet. It happened.
